Abstract: Two new species of the emesine reduviid genus Ploiaria Scopoli, 1786, P. stysi sp. nov. and P. paveli sp. nov., are described from Bali and Flores, Indone- sia. Ploiaria stysi sp. nov. differs from P. maai Wygodzinsky, 1966, by the male antennal segments I and II lacking long setae, the procoxa 1.3 times as long as the pronotum, the anteroventral series of the profemur beginning with two basal spine-like setae distinctly placed from other spine-like setae, the parameres not overlapping each other in rest, etc. Ploiaria paveli sp. nov. is distinguished from P. halosydne Wygodzinsky & Usinger, 1960, by the body length more than 12 mm, the anteroventral series of the profemur beginning with one basal spine-like seta distinctly placed from other spine-like setae, the metafemur pale in apical part, etc.
